What you will need:


Pastry

  • 2 C. Baking flour
  • 8 Tbsp. Butter/Margarine
  • 1/2 C. Water
  • ½ Oil for frying

Filling

  • 2 C. Peas, boiled

  • 2 Green papers, finely chopped
  • 2 Large tomatoes, finely chopped
  • 2 Medium onions, finely chopped
  • 3 Garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1 Tsp. of finely chopped ginger
  • Salt

Method

Pastry

In a dish, combine flour with butter/margarine. Keep mixing until the mixture becomes crumbly. Next, add water. A tablespoon at a time while mixing until you form a firm dough. Divide the dough into six equal balls. Roll each ball into a circle (or something close to it) making sure it is as thin as possible but not nearly breaking. Cut the circles into equal halves. Fold all the halves into cones. Seal the edges by dipping a finger in water and running it across the edge and then pressing together, leaving an opening for the filling.

Filling

On medium heat, add a sauce pan. Add two tablespoons of oil and wait for it to become hot. Next, add the ginger and garlic and wait for it to brown a little. Once browned, add the onions and stir. Add the tomatoes and cover pan for close to two minutes. Check if the tomatoes are softened. If they are, add the green paper and carrots. Stir. Add the Peas and Stir. Cover the pan for 5 minutes. Remove lid and stir while adding salt. Keep stirring till the mixture becomes dry (without any liquids left). Remove from fire.
